    Stray Rescue wins $1M contest

    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    Wednesday, May. 21 2008

    Stray Rescue of St. Louis has won a $1 million shelter makeover.

    Stray Rescue beat out two other finalists in the national contest sponsored by
    zootoo.com, a website dedicated to helping pets and pet lovers.

    Helen Magg, who handles publicity for zootoo, confirmed this morning that
    Grim's nonprofit organization is the winner.

    Randy Grim was told of the decision Saturday but sworn to secrecry until the
    announcement at 9 a.m. today on Fox's "The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet."

    Nearly 1,000 shelters signed up to participate but that list was whittled to
    three finalists last week. The first runner-up will receive $10,000 and the
    other 18 finalists will each win $5,000.

    Grim didn't let on that he was the winner when the Post-Dispatch contacted him
    Tuesday night in New York.

    "I feel like we already won, even if we lose," Grim had said, "because it’s
    brought so much awareness to Stray Rescue, just the competition has."

    A few hundred supporters turned out at a rally earlier this month to support
    Stray Rescue and its plans to build a new shelter at a warehouse at 2325 Pine
    Street. The project will cost about $3 million and Stray Rescue has raised
    about $700,000, Grim said.

    The other finalists in the zootoo.com contest are the Humane Society of the
    Ohio Valley in Marietta, Ohio, and the Jefferson County SPCA in Watertown, N.Y.
    The Humane Society and PEDIGREE Adoption Drive Foundation are co-sponsors.
    Sometimes elections have positive consequences!
